2010 is here. I am excited to see what this decade will bring for the world as well as our family, but a little concerned as well. I don't think it's a good omen to have people so confused about how to say the upcoming year or what to call the new decade. Is it twenty-ten or two thousand and ten? Is it the "tweens" or is it the "10's"? Will we switch at 2013 and call it the "teens" ? Our world has enough problems and I have to admit it is a little disconcerting that there is no clear answer on these problems that we usually have no problem with. Well onward and upward I guess...
The Rowe family spent New Years Eve in a relaxed fashion. We went bowling in the afternoon eating all the pizza we could eat (which I have to say is quite a lot). None of us had scores worth repeating, but we had fun. Well, Harry was a little disappointed that he couldn't beat Becca, but he got over it. Erick tried to teach Bella how to bowl without bumpers for the first game, but the second game taught all of us that the game can be more fun with the bumpers up! After a trip to Lunds in the afternoon to pick up some last minute necessities, it was home to start our yearly food traditions. We ate lots of brie and french bread while playing the game Apples to Apples. It was fun that Bella was old enough this year to participate more in the game. Then we watched the movies "Up" and "Enchanted". Two feel good movies to set the tone for the New Year. Erick, Harry and Bella stayed up to greet the New Year in central time, but Becca and I only made it to eastern time.
Today will be a day to catch up on sleep and enjoy some more family time. With all of this slow moving, Monday is going to be hard to handle when schedules and commitments return.
Best wishes to everyone for a wonderful 2010; however you choose to pronounce it!
